Highlights
  • Afternoon and evening tour of Hawaii Volcanoes National Park from Hilo
  • See the lava flows of a former eruption that buried a local town
  • Tour craters, steam vents, and lava tubes in daylight and at sunset
  • Taste volcanic wine and enjoy dinner at the nearby Volcanic Winery
What to Expect
Meet your driver and guide in downtown Hilo, or arrange for hotel pickup. Begin with a look at the power of Hawaii's active volcanoes. Visit the site of Kalapana, a former village completely destroyed by lava flows, and the island’s newest black-sand beach at Kaimu. See the Painted Church of St. Damien, considered a sacred site by locals; it was moved several times to save it from advancing lava. Enter Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and learn more about the Big Island’s geologic history. Explore the park’s diverse topography with your ranger guide, from lush rain forest to simmering craters and hissing steam vents. At nearby Volcano Winery, get a private tour of vineyards and tea orchards, before dinner and a glass of wine. Back at the park, watch the changing light of the setting sun wash over Mt. Kilauea and look for glowing lava flows and other volcanic activity.

Long drive in an old van. Guide was knowledgeable and pleasant. Dinner was less than a roadside food stand. Winery was equivalent to a roadside stand. National Park Visitor center was a brief restroom break. Volcano crater was inactive and clouded over (not the tour operators
